Month in Review: August 2016

Hello lovelies!

Gah I can’t believe September is here already! But I’m super excited for Fall to arrive as it’s my favorite season 🙂 Warm drinks, cozy sweaters, falling leaves & watching them change colors are some of my favorite things! September also means back to school time. I hope all of you are celebrating this event haha but really, I seriously love back to school week! My classes don’t start until next week, so I’m dedicating next week as back to school week. Be sure to stay tuned for some “back to school” themed posts!

Anyway, without further adieu, check out my August recap :

So I actually filmed a quick haul video, so as soon as I edit it I’ll have it up here for you all to see! I just got all the books I order in this month just yesterday so that’s why this isn’t all up to date -_-

Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 4.43.29 PMAugust was just as uneventful as July. I spent most of it reading to be honest. Other than reading I was packing up my apartment to move all my things back to my parents’ house & just going to work. I actually missed my book club meeting this month 🙁 due to my visit home, but I’m hoping to make it to September’s meeting. I did have an opportunity to show some friends around Boston, but we didn’t do too much as we only had a few hours. While I was at Quincey Market I saw an outdoor library that I snapped some photos of 🙂

 

Otherwise, I spent my days indoors reading and packing or out at work. I also focused a bit on stepping up my Bookstagram game and hope that my photos are starting to look a bit better haha. I’m a bit busy this Fall & September so I’m not sure what adventures that I’ll be able to go on, but as always I’ll keep you updated!

    I've been wanting to read Homegoing and Eligible, but didn't have the energy with my participation in ARC August. They're both on my list, though! https://candidceillie.com/2016/09/02/arcaugust-wrap-up/
